The possibility to open other files

Code Writer App Suggestions and Support Forum

For example: .cshtml or .aspx files. Now I can not open these files with the file browser in the application because they are hidden by the file filter.

Maybe add the possibility to associate more file extensions to a certain file type.

Hi Randy,

This is something we have on our TODO list.  We want to make the file types be able to support user specified file extensions.  Do you prefer to have a single page where you configure this (like a grid with file type and extension column) or would you prefer to have to drill down into a file type detail page for each file type and enter them there?

On a side note, WinRT limits us in what we can show in the open pickers and they block *.*, which is annoying for a Code Writer sort of app.  We can programmatically give it a list of file extensions though, so allowing you to customize those will help.

Hi Randy,

Good news, we've implemented user specified file extensions for the upcoming v1.3 release!

We added some chevrons next to the file types in the list.  When you tap those, you go to a detail page for the file type and can add them there.  We needed this detail page for the future anyhow if we add some file type-specific options.

How can I open files with no file extension?

Hi Antonio,

Unfortunately it doesn't appear that the Microsoft file open picker allows it.  We found that when we tried in this post.

Also, this post from a third party confirms the same thing.
